So amazing!!!! They have everything and it's 100% gluten free kitchen!
The Wild Wood Bakehouse is the MOST wonderful GF cafe and bakery in the entire country. This is my favorite place to eat when we are in Austin. The staff is wonderful and extremely accommodating to anything you need. I have never had a meal or bakery item that I didn't like. Before departing Austin, I always place a large to-go order which they pack carefully for plane transport. I've had people offer me $25 for my GF sandwich!! The eggplant parmesan, Ding Dongs and thin mint cookies are my favorites.
I need more stars to rate this properly, it's just too good.
This place rocks!! After reading other peoples reviews I was nervous but I have no idea what they are crying about!!! I am a full on celiac, I get sick easy. First off the whole place is gluten free 100%!! It feels great to walk in a place and be able to order whatever you want off the menu. Our waitress was awesome and very friendly. I kept asking her if she was sure everything was gluten free and she assured me I could eat with no worries and I did. I recommend the chicken fried steak! It was the best one I've ever had even before I was diagnosed. Me and my partner shared that and the enchiladas. We had onion rings that tasted like the real thing! Then for dessert I had a ding dong. Everything was amazing and I didn't get sick at all. We went at 3pm to avoid a wait. It was very clean and open in there, they offered all kinds of desserts. The only thing I didn't care for was the toast, but I had plenty of other amazing things to enjoy. If your like me and have to abide by a gluten free lifestyle this is seriously the place to eat. I wish it wasn't so far away from where I love or I would visit this place often.
not enough safety in sourcing. OK if you're not Celiac, I guess
Don't listen to the bad reviews. Had brunch on 11/24/2013 and the ALL of the buffet was ridiculously good. My celiac disease is severe, I get sick at the sight of gluten (not literally obviously). I highly recommend it.
Enjoyed a great lunch here, even had a good gluten free beer. The food was great, service good, and the prices reasonable. Went back for Sunday brunch buffet. Great to be able to eat everything on the buffet. The food was delicious, you couldn't ask for better food or service.
This place is fabulous! I can't eat gluten or dairy and love that things are labeled and I have dairy-free options. The corn tortillas are amazing...I just wish they started serving breakfast tacos earlier than 10. Chicken fried steak is unbelievable..... better than most I had prior to discovering my gluten sensitivity.
Emailed twice and can't get more info on other ingredients and prep process. After hearing from a coworker, I think this place is for the fad gf eaters.
the bread has too much xanthan for my gummy tummy. calamari and tamales with ranchero sauce were superb!!!! felt safe and appreciated. UPDATE 9/9 PM: so tired that I could barely drive back to San Antonio at 4pm. About to this up. Absolutely got glutened here. update: no one ever called me back about their sourcing and vinegar. boo! UPDATE 9/9: I see Heinz ketchup.. . eeeeep! no white vinegar, even if it meets upcoming fda guidelines for gluten free. no no no. going to talk to the owner about this and other sourcing issues.
Their brunch made my day! It's delicious, decadent if you're in the mood and/or healthy. The coffee is outstanding and migas among the best I've had in Austin. Thank God for Wildwood Bakehouse. Having phenomenal French toast is unheard of in this town for a celiac!!!!
Nice that everything is gluten free! Here for the breakfast buffet. Good selection.
We went there last night and I've got to say everything was AMAZING. They're a little pricey (but what GF food isn't?). We chose them because my husbands parents were in town, and between them and us we had a lot of dietary restrictions to worry about and they seemed like they would have something for everyone. (I'm vegetarian with various food allergies, my son is GFCF, and his mom is Celiac). As we had hoped, everyone was easily able to find something they liked: My husband ordered the steak (which he said was the best he's had in years), his parents both ordered the BLT (and both said they really liked the bread - which is a big deal since his mom generally hates GF bread), I ordered the mushroom and spinach enchilada plate, and my son had the chicken strips and fruit. We also tried the dairy-free pumpkin cupcake, the GF strawberry shortcake, and one other CF and chocolate desert. My husband thought he wouldn't like the shortcake bc it was GF but it was downright delicious. My only complaint was that their children's menu had an awful lot of dairy in it - if they added some more dairy free options to it, we'd be in heaven with this restaurant.
Went there Sunday for breakfast. They had a wonderful all gluten free buffet. Such a cool experience for my son to have all kinds of choices and not have to worry about anything. Food was very good.
Fantastic food. Everything here is gluten-free as it is a dedicated GF restaurant. They go beyond most of the standards found at other restaurants, and they even offer fried food! Their onion rings are particularly good.
at the very top of the menu it states... yes, we are 100% gluten free. I was dining with my parents. my dad is gf and a native Texan, and stated this was the best chicken fried steak. mom ate chicken mole enchiladas, and I ate dairy free bison burger. you will not have room for dessert, but don't forget to take some home!!!
Great food and good people!!!
Yay!!! An entirely gluten free restaurant?! Say what?! I was thrilled to death to try this place. Hubby and I went to breakfast yesterday while visiting Austin and were not disappointed! I had french toast and hubby the breakfast taco platter. We devoured our dishes. I also bought a few things from their bakery to take back to the hotel for the rest of the week - cookies, a brownie and 2 cupcakes. I was bummed they were out of cinnamon rolls, but that must mean they are delicious and you better snatch them up while you can! The staff was super friendly and it was such a breath of fresh air to feel completely safe at a restaurant!
Absolutely delicious gf cafe/bakery. Extensive menu, friendly staff and clean pleasing decor. A find for a gf individual!
Fantastic, everything is gluten free. I tried almost everything on the Sunday brunch, went back for dinner with non-gf friends. And everyone enjoyed their dinners. Service might be a tad slow but absolutely worth a wait. Definitely going back.
I went for the buffet brunch Sunday. It was amazing! I took one of my gluten-eating friends and she was very impressed. For $9.99 you get the buffet and a mimosa or orange juice. The buffet had tortilla soup, Migas, eggs, potatoes, bacon, two kinds of beans, French toast, waffles, roasted pork, macaroni and cheese, tamales, and enchiladas. I sampled many of the options and was very happy with everything. My favorite was a tie between the French toast and the Mac and cheese. The French toast was well spiced and appropriately crunchy and not soggy. Many places over cook their noodles but the Mac and cheese noodles were perfect.
What a wonderful place! Great food all around. Their ham and cheese sandwich is great, smothered in delicious and fresh avocado. The enchiladas is a ton of food, very creamy and tasty. We went for brunch on Sunday and they have so many options (and its all you can eat for $9!). Outstanding migas, french toast, waffles, RIBS, bacon, and a complimentary mimosa! Their salsa is also awesome...I could eat it all night. I do not need a gluten free diet but my wife does, but I would come to WildWood anytime for a good meal. They don't make 'good gluten-free food,' they simply make damn good food. They also make really good cupcakes, pizza crusts, and other goodies. The service is very friendly and helpful as well. Go eat at Wild Wood!
Relocated from Bee Caves Road. Give them time to work out the kinks. Several parts of our orders were wrong: bison instead of Angus beef in the burgers, ficaccio and sourdough buns were switched. No biggie and they were good about making it right. Two kinds of GF beer, and several non-GF beers. Ask about GF before ordering a wine. I'll review again in a month or two. The evening staff has it together better than the lunch staff.
yay!!! the freedom of a delicious, 100% gluten free restaurant!
Awesome restaurant/bakery/cafe! Great service, tasty food, delicious desserts. Had the bison burger on white rice bread, with chips and salsa, and finished it up with a chocolate cupcake. Highly recommended!
Been to Wild Wood many times! The lasagna is rich and very tasty. Any Mexican platter will fill you up for a day! The spinach/mushroom enchalidas are my fav. Love you new location and the live music Thur HHs.
Amazing food and desserts and everything is gluten free! I had quesadillas and carrot cake. So good! I felt so lucky to find this place close to my work. I'll be stopping by again for sure.
